Screen Shot 2013-09-02 at 2.04.45 PM

Finally Spring has arrived! Sadly or wonderfully (depending on which way you look at it), it’s also the time of year for a Spring clean! Thankfully I have TheHome senior stylist Marjorie Silva on hand to give her advice on how to de-clutter your space and add some sprucing up for Spring! After the hoarding I’ve undertaken this winter I am well and truly in need of some direction!

so i’m a bit obsessed with incy interiors

Screen Shot 2013-09-02 at 10.26.10 AM

I love the online world. It feels like every few days I stumble across a person or store through social media that makes me go gaga. This week it’s Incy Interiors; a business that specialises in designer furniture for babies and children – plus so much more. Their art and accessories are so cute that even I want them for my room (that, or I need to father I child immediately – it could go either way!).

1 | I’ve raved on and on about my love for Stone Inspired coasters before – and when I saw they were having a sale on these scrabble-inspired ones this week, I just had to grab a few. This ‘D’ is a pressie for my Mum and I just love the simplicity of the design. Typography is such an easy way to personalise your space – and what better way than on a coaster?!

a tour of tlc headquarters – my humble home!

Screen Shot 2013-08-10 at 3.41.27 PM

I did a bit of a clean up on Saturday and thought it might be a good opportunity to show you inside my home. After all, the cats were behaving, the sun was shining and I was busy killing time trying to avoid doing homework for my course (procrastination is something I’ve become very skilled at). So here you go, Creatives, it’s not the stuff magazines are made of – but nobody lives in the magazines anyway – so take a squiz and let me know what you think.

so I just discovered koskela (omfg!)

Screen Shot 2013-08-03 at 2.09.11 PM

I must start this post with an apology; Koskela, I’m sorry it took me so long to discover you. However, now that I’ve experienced the magic of your store, I’m declaring my love for you and intend to serenade you with that John Mayer song, Your Body is a Wonderland. Because, truly, that’s how I feel after having walked around the space last weekend. Creatives, have a medic on standby for this store tour. It’s colourful, it’s quirky and it’s a whole lotta lovely!

1 | I had my socks rocked off this week when I got my hands on this amazing trio of concrete candle holders from Melbourne company Sarai Homewares. Available in a range of colours – including neon – these three holders are made and set in recycled moulds, which is all rather environmentally friendly! The company also stocks my other love – cushions – and more!

1 | I love a local set of Creatives making some uniquely Aussie products and the team from Kitchen Ink have not disappointed this week. Get a load of my brand new Mr & Mr pillow case set in all its black and white glory. It’s playing particularly well with my polka dot bedspread and you’ll notice little Oswald there having the time of this life too. They’re also available in Mrs & Mrs and Mr and Mrs sets – too good!

real rooms: cheryl pryce’s bedroom sanctuary

image

To kick off The Life Creative’s Real Rooms, I thought it was patriotic that we started in the nations capital. This charming bedroom sanctuary belongs to Canberra native Cheryl Pryce; a public servant who is about to embark on an interior design course (is there any better course?). Sharing the 1970’s townhouse with her daughter, two dogs and two cats, Cheryl’s spent the last six weeks recovering from a car accident, which is why this bedroom has become so vital.

which-are-you-wednesday: bedding

I think bedding is one of those things you don’t fully appreciate the importance of until you sleep in something of quality. This happened to me recently when my parents purchased me a winter quilt. Good Lord it is magical. It inspired this week’s Which-are-you-Wednesday: Bedding! I actually have one of the below sets. Let’s see if you pick it as your fave!

I call this one BRIGHT BOHO because it reminds me of the store, Tree of Life. I also happen to absolutely adore that purple crochet throw and the patterns on those pillows are to die for!

1 | I am addicted to buying cards. So much so that I have a stack in my drawer just waiting for an occasion to roll around. I was in all sorts of fits of ecstasy this week when I got my hands on these mind-blowing cards from TJ Stationery. They’re letterpress ones – printed on 100% cotton paper stock – and I just love how simplistic, playful and charming they are. The Kite and Swing ones are my fave, but there are many more, all with the same sense of love. Too good.
